Northstowe Secondary College have launched a community hub partnership with Norwich City FC Regional Development Partnership.

The two-year link-up will see Norwich City RDP staff based on site to give advice and support to students, and they will provide a wide range of holiday clubs, summer schools, after school clubs and training programmes run by the club.

Alex Kaufman, Norwich City’s RDP managing director, said: “We are really excited to be working alongside Northstowe Secondary College to provide unique and positive experiences for students within the local area and beyond.

“At Norwich City RDP, we strive to develop high-quality provisions and provide excellent learning opportunities through sport which open up pathways to future careers in sport. We look forward to developing a strong relationship with Northstowe and to help enhance the great work that has already been established there.”

On the new partnership, Northstowe Secondary College headteacher Carole Moss said: “With these improved provisions and an enriching sports curriculum in place, we look forward to using these facilities to extend the boundaries of learning.

“This will create opportunities that will benefit our young people’s personal development and help them to gain a genuine passion for sport at a young age.

“We look forward to seeing how this partnership will progress and the further benefits it will provide to our students and to the wider community.

“We also have a new café, gym and fitness space opening soon to make the school site space even more accessible and are pleased to already see an increased demand for bookings and the sports facilities being used regularly by the community, as was the exciting vision for Northstowe when it was established.”

The college, part of the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), will join Norwich’s existing community hub regional schools, which include Cambourne Village College and King's School Ely.
